In the World of Technology, Biometrics plays an effective role in identifying Human beings. Biometrics or characteristics are tightly connected to an individual and cannot be forgotten, shared, stolen or easily hacked. Since biometrics can better solve the problems of access control, fraud and theft, more and more organizations are considering biometrics a solution to their security problems.
The characteristics can uniquely identify a person, replacing or supplementing traditional security methods by providing two major improvements: personal biometrics cannot be easily stolen and an individual does not need to memorize passwords or codes.
Our android-based Biometric Student Attendance System ensures security, access control, reliability, efficiency and better performance. The system will have data on every student, and check the daily attendance of every student using the device. In this project, the front-end involves XML, Android-Java and the back-end involves SQL Server. The IDE used is Android Studio.
Biometrics gives you an alternative and higher security compared to passwords or pin identification due to the fact that passwords and pins can easily be compromised. Managing student attendance during lecture periods has become a difficult challenge.
The manual system of taking attendance is done on paper by the use of a pen, students write their names, index numbers and sign on a sheet of paper, this makes the system unreliable because students can write names of friends who are not in class. Also, the ability to compute the attendance percentage becomes a major task as manual computation produces errors, and also wastes a lot of time.
For the stated reasons, an efficient attendance management system using biometrics is designed. This system takes attendance electronically with the help of a fingerprint device and the records of the attendance are stored in a database. Attendance is marked after student identification.
- It is easy to maintain.
- It is user-friendly.
- The system allows marking of student’s attendance using biometrics.
- Parents can easily apply for their child’s leave.
- Parents will also receive notification regarding their child’s leave response and academic performance.
